Hilton Watford’s Karan Sobti Wins Community Award 2017
Hilton Watford Deputy Manager is presented with Community Award by Dorothy Thornhill, Mayor of Watford
WATFORD, England - Hilton Watford is proud to announce that the hotel's deputy manager, Karan Sobti, has received the 2017 Community Award for his incredible support towards the local community.
Throughout 2016, Karan Sobti and his team organised a number of fundraising activities to raise money for the Starfish Children's Ward at Watford General. They raised the outstanding amount of £5,000 and presented the cheque at their annual Ball alongside the DM of the Thomas Foundation for Young People.
The Starfish Children's Ward is a 20-bed general pediatric ward caring for children and young people up to the age of 16 years old. The ward cares for children with both medical and surgical conditions and has two high dependency beds.
Moreover, as part of Hilton's Global Week of Service initiative, the Blue Energy team at Hilton Watford participated in painting and gardening at Colnbrook School, a special state school for pupils aged from 4 to 11 with autism and learning, speech and language difficulties.
"It is great to see the children make use of the space we created as team, whether it be watching the flowers blossom or keeping the area tidy. Teachers also now have an interactive teaching tool and the children have the opportunity to learn about nature," said Karan Sobti, deputy manager, Hilton Watford. "It was a truly amazing experience seeing the children involved from start to finish, and witnessing the moment they saw their work come to life was definitely a great highlight."
